GRF CPAs & Advisors was recently named as one of Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work for for 2020. Accounting Today has partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees. 2020 marks the 9th year GRF has received this prestigious honor.

This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the accounting profession, benefiting its economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 100 firms. The rankings will be released for the first time in the September issue of Accounting Today.

To be considered for participation, firms had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Must be an accounting firm.
  • Have a facility in the United States;
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the United States;
  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year

Firms from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top firms and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final ranking.
